really liked it
bookshelves: light-and-fun
Read in January, 2006

As delicious as fizzy lemonade and only slightly more substantive, this novel by the screenwriter of “Gosford Park” takes you through the courtship and marriage of a middle-class beauty (“I knew she was a social climber; I didn’t realize she was a mountaineer!”) and an aristocratic dullard. No one escapes the dry acerbity of author Julian Fellowes, who was born into the bosom of the upper-class and obviously knows the species intimately. A very light, very fun, very delectably waspish portrait of a class of people who are polar opposites of the type populating reality-TV.

Karen Slogging through this book. Dissappointed in it. I don't find it compelling at all .

Naim Peress It wasn't compelling but if this book were food, I'd call it a dessert rather than main course. A very delicious dessert. Very enjoyable.
